    My car

    Beautiful looking car spoilt by DAB problems.

    Great engine.

    Brakes take a little getting used to as you need to brake earlier and hard than in my previous cars.

    …..BUT the big issue is the fact the Mercedes DAB radio does not work in the UK properly. According to my dealer, the antennae fitted to the vehicle is for the German market and not the UK market. The result is radio reception that breaks up all the time and long periods of nothing on any channel. As the antennae is also supposed to provide traffic broadcast that also is problematic. This appears to be a common problem with lots of different models from Mercedes, and not just confined to this one vehicle or model. Current fix from Mercedes Germany…disconnect the antennae, as it serves no purpose. However, that only leaves you with a DAB radio trying to pick up signals through a FM/AM aerial in eth door pillar. Still not good. I am amazed that a car manufacturer can release a product into a market and not check that the advertised functions actually work.

    If you don’t care about DAB radio, it’s a great car. Otherwise, buy something else.

    My car

    Simply "Sumptuous". Each time I drive the car it gives you a fabulous feeling of quality and cosseting yet when you squeeze on the power it swiftly and effortlessly accelerates down the road with acceptable road manors for such a large coupe. Room for 4 fully grown adults (remember you have bought the coupe because it is a Coupe) if you want / need more space buy a saloon! Fantastic audio, super sleek 7 speed auto this is a fantastic "mature" persons car capable of eating up the miles at speed without drama or fuss.

    I looked at Audi, BMW, Jaguar amongst others yet the looks and quality feeling of the Merc just kept calling me back

    Others may look faster on paper but are dated in looks that don't draw appreciating comments as the Merc

    Running cost are excellent with mpg on motorways 55 and combined in the 40's

    Ownership feel good factor 10/10 All day

    My car

    I bought this car 20 months ago purely on its dramatic looks. I chose the lowest powered engine as I'm not interested in performance but want style and luxury. However, it I find it surprisingly fast, a great cruiser on long journeys - it's so comfortable especially with the optional comfort seats. It has all the equipment I need and the so many safety features which are reassuring.

    Every time I drive it, I have a smile on my face. What more can you ask for?

    Why do journalists complain about rear space? It's a coupe.

    I am mean and tight so I think my overall 34mpg is poor. Mpg is good in town but less good on long runs probably because of the big car / small engine combination.
